Went to start my 2003 500 and all I got was a click coming from back by the battery. Feels like maybe a relay because I can actually feel it click. Had to jump it off the car battery earlier today due to leaving it on for a few hours and killing battery. It started fine several times after running it for about an hour to charge but then a few minutes later stalled it and went to start...Click click.....thanks for the help!

If you ran it at idle for an hour, it was probably barely charging at all, if any. Even if you were at higher RPM, an hour isn't enough to fully charge it.
Also, if you completely drained the battery, you might have damaged the battery. Starting batteries are not designed to go fully dry like deep cycle batteries

Put a trickle charger on it overnight and see what you get the next day.
If you have any more problems, replace the battery.
